Catedral de Sal de Zipaquira Reviews
Muy bonito, muy repetitivo el tema de las cruces podrian ser otro tipo arte con niños no es recomendable el trayecto muy largo more »Very nice, very repetitive the theme of the crosses could be another type of art with children is not recommended the very long journey
Sólo quiero comentar que compré artesanías y llegando a mi país se empezaron a derretir. Al comprarlo no te advierten nada y no son tan baratas. Eso me decepcionó. more »I just want to comment that I bought handicrafts and coming to my country started to melt. When you buy it, they don't warn you anything and they're not that cheap. That disappointed me.
The cathedral is very interesting in it's concept. Huge salt mine in deep cave. First rooms you enter are mysterious and main hall is magnificent. But market area really spoils all the atmosphere. Worth visiting if you are in Bogota.
This famous cathedral is underground in a geologically stable former salt mine. The stations of the Cross and the Narthex display amazing stone cutting. All representations of the symbols of faith are figurative. You will enjoy and be amazed by this spectacular work underground. Temperature is pleasant.
